“We welcome the introduction of this legislation into the US House of Representatives and Senate, and hope that it would become a law soon.

Taking into account the indispensable position of the USA in the world economy, a law that will protect workers’ right to unionise in the United States will be vital to winning union recognition and bargaining rights world-wide.

American companies have been exporting their labor practices to every country they do business in and foreign companies have eagerly embraced those practices once inside the US.”, said the letter.
